Garrido Wants To Cement His First Team Status.
Javier Garrido has spoken about his desire to stay at City and Fight for that crucial left back spot in which I believe is a very weak area for the Blues.
He Told Guillem Balague's official website:
'Players hear the names of others who may be coming in and of course you wonder about how it's going to affect you.
'But you just have to focus on taking your chances and playing well when you get in to the side.
'Be positive, don't worry about who is coming in and think this is a fantastic opportunity to play for a great club that is being and transformed and really going places.'
Its good to hear that he`s committed to the City cause, but I just cant help but think that he`s just too lightweight for the Premiership. He scored a great goal against Liverpool, and going forward he is very good, but its defensive qualities that I believe to be lacking some what. Will Garrido be the left-back that helps us win the league?
Another of City`s Left-backs, Glauber Berti produced a good display for the reserves last night. Reserve coach Glyn Hodges had only but praise for the Brazilian. He told the Official Man City website:
"Glauber did well, I had him alongside Ben Mee as two left-footed centre halves and they worked hard. He looks strong and competitive, he won a lot of headers, there may be a language problem but that`s probably because I talk too fast! He`s enjoying it, and this is a good place to be at the moment."
Is he another option to fill Garrido`s? Who would you like to see as City`s left-back? In my opinion unless Garrido can prove me wrong and I hope he does, Man City could be in the market for a Left-back come January.
